Jason Jordan has reportedly landed a new role within WWE.

The former SmackDown Tag Team Champion had been working backstage as a producer, but he has now seen his role expanded and responsibilities increased.

As reported by Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Jordan has taken over as Lead Producer after John Laurinaitis moved to oversee Talent Relations.

The report notes:

“WWE has made sweeping changes to a number of departments as part of WWE President Nick Khan’s re-tooling of the company on the corporate end.

With the departure of Mark Carrano, we reported last week that John Cone’s exit from Talent Relations had been rescinded. PWInsider.com has since confirmed that Cone is now second in command to John Laurinaitis in that department, a bump up in responsibility from his previous role as Manager of Talent Relations. We are also told that at least 1-2 others have been added to that department.”

Johnson also notes that Adam Pearce has moved up the WWE pecking order in recent weeks, and they are working to find out his new role.

Meanwhile, Jason Jordan who has been out of the ring since January 2018 following a serious neck injury, will now oversee all other producers at TV tapings.

At WrestleMania 37 it was reported that Jordan worked as a producer on the WWE Title match on night one, and the Intercontinental Title match on night two.
